Review: Vic Vaughn is Vicious by J.A. Huss

☆☆➹⁀☆ 5 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

My name is Vicious. God-given name, I cross my heart.

And it fits.

I’m a hot, inked-up tattoo artist at the trendiest shop in the Rocky Mountains.

I have the looks, I have the bike, I have the reputation.

That means I get the ladies.

Sure. There are lots of women out there who hate tattoos. Wouldn’t be caught dead with guys like me. And that’s fine. I’m not looking for girls like that.

I’m looking for that other kind of girl.

The wild one, the bad one, the crazy one.

Funny thing is… the one I fell for isn’t that girl.

She’s the Good Girl.

And maybe back when she was nineteen I came off as a ‘maybe’, but after seven years of distance I am now the definition of ‘not a keeper’.

But I can be a keeper.

I can make the good girl swoon.

I can be the dream guy she never saw coming.

If she would just… not press charges… I’m pretty sure I can turn this whole relationship around.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious is a bad-boy-trying-his best-to-win-her-back romantic comedy about a misunderstood tattoo-artist-biker called Vicious and a good girl named Daisy who ghosted him seven years ago after she came to her senses. It’s filled with funny twists, dreams of grandeur, and all seven members of the most inappropriate family in all of Colorado. This is a standalone book and is not part of a series.

My Thoughts:

Is Vic Vaughn the legendary bad boy of Fort Collins or is he a much maligned and misunderstood guy trying to take care of his family? Vic Vaughn is Vicious is a story about not judging a book by its cover—at least in terms of the character’s reputation because the story and the book’s cover are gorgeous.

In this standalone, second-chance-at-love romantic comedy, author J.A. Huss gives her readers the story of Vic Vaughn. Readers have been teased by cameo appearances by this bad boy biker/tattoo artist in other books, and we have finally been rewarded with his story. I feel live I’ve been rewarded handsomely for patiently waiting. I love Vic’s backstory; he is not the guy I thought he’d be. I love his crazy family and extended circle of friends and their sincere love and support for one another. Most of all, I love the new additions to his story—Daisy and Vivian. These two gals swept me off my feet. 

Whether a romantic suspense, a conspiracy thriller, or a romantic comedy, author J.A. Huss’ storytelling is always engaging and entertaining. True to style, Ms. Huss has included some interesting twists in Vic Vaughn is Vicious. Some of her twists are funny and some of them kept me on the edge of my seat wondering where that unexpected turn would take her characters. I enjoyed every minute of this “E-ticket” ride; it was a great choice for my vacation read.

About the Author: J.A. Huss never wanted to be a writer and she still dreams of that elusive career as an astronaut. She originally went to school to become an equine veterinarian but soon figured out they keep horrible hours and decided to go to grad school instead. That Ph.D wasn’t all it was cracked up to be (and she really sucked at the whole scientist thing), so she dropped out and got a M.S. in forensic toxicology just to get the whole thing over with as soon as possible.

After graduation she got a job with the state of Colorado as their one and only hog farm inspector and spent her days wandering the Eastern Plains shooting the shit with farmers. After a few years of that, she got bored. And since she was a homeschool mom and actually does love science, she decided to write science textbooks and make online classes for other homeschool moms. She wrote more than two hundred of those workbooks and was the number one publisher at the online homeschool store many times, but eventually she covered every science topic she could think of and ran out of shit to say.

So in 2012 she decided to write fiction instead. That year she released her first three books and started a career that would make her a New York Times bestseller and land her on the USA Today Bestseller’s List eighteen times in the next three years. Her books have sold millions of copies all over the world, the audio version of her semi-autobiographical book, Eighteen, was nominated for a Voice Arts Award and an Audie award in 2016 and 2017 respectively, her audiobook Mr. Perfect was nominated for a Voice Arts Award in 2017, and her book, Taking Turns, was nominated for an Audie Award in 2018. Johnathan McClain is her first (and only) writing partner and even though they are worlds apart in just about every way imaginable, it works.

She lives on a ranch in Central Colorado with her family.
